Thomas's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase tires for his truck so that he can resume his work.

Thomas's story

Thomas is a 34-year-old married man with two lovely children. He has a transport business in Nabweru and owns a truck that helps him earn a living.

Thomas approached UGAFODE Microfinance to request a loan so that he can purchase tires for his truck since the current ones have worn out. This will enable him to travel long distances. He has temporarily stopped driving for fear of sliding and causing accidents.

Thomas awaits a positive response from UGAFODE and the Kiva lenders about his funding.
